you make of this? you know what is going on with sugar is you have monsoons in india and brazilians taking a lot of money away into ethanol production and it isn't this sinister white house effort. what do you make of it? >> it really isn't a sinister white house effort. we have a two-price system for shirg. we pay domestic producers roughly twice the world price and those that consume sugar are upset about that. they don't like paying twice the price. they are trying to get down to the world price. i don't blame them. it is a perfect example of what you do when you screw around. i'm the only one old enough to remember when hi dad was in price of controls under nixon. it screwed things up terribly. i'm worried we will have it in healthcare and screwed up price system and i'm extremely worried. this sugar thing is an objective lesson. neil: you are referring to -- what do you think? >> price controls are coming in gasoline probably, energy. pause you see what they want to do with regulating. the commodities markets and keeping out speculators. this is the perfect example of how gover

summer, the mild epidemic went through western europe, china, india, and the philippine islands and it struck spain and the west indees. in early march, the epidemic resembled the typical flu, affecting the sick and elderly and healthier people recovered easily. in august, when the second wave began in france, sierra lee i don't know, and the united states, the virus mutated into a deadlier form. when the pandemic ended in 1920, up to 100 million people had died worldwide, and another 400 million people had gotten sick t has been called the greatest medical holocaust in history, comparable to the black death, and that's the great influenza in a nutshell. here's why i'm talking about this. first of all, i notice in the paper they are not tracking it at the w.h.o. anymore and i thought that's weird. it is either really good or really bad. the second thing is the doctor will say should i test for swine flu and he will say no, don't worry about t the third thing, have you meardz about chickenpox parties? where you get your kids together the history of the influenza in 1918, i have c
, india e and the philippine islands. it struck greece, sweden, and switzerland, spain and west indies and even the arctic. the epidemic resembled typical flu epidemics affecting mostlyy the sick and elderly. in august, when the second wavi began in france, sierra leone and the united states it was ao deadlier form. form. when it ended in 1920, up to 100 million people died worldwide and anotherlion peo 400 million had gotten sick. it has been called the greatesc medical holocaust in history,i comparable to the black deatheh and that is the great influenza in a nut shell. good they are not even asking, the doctor will say should i bes tested for swine flu? no, don't worry about it. what, it's getting worse. have you ever heard of chickenpox parties when you get the kids together? because of the history of great influenza, i considered a chickenpox party, you known you have the swine flu, could b you cough on me? s most experts agree that peoplet are likely to need two doses of the vaccine so get fullcyru immunity. in other words, the u.s. needs 600 million doses just ain't ir chance we

to milk this segment for all this worse. it is very popular in places like india and the middle east and so forth. the question is, how does it taste? how do you get americans to try this? i'd try it. the health benefits are unbelievable. it is low ryan calories, lower in fat, lower in cholesterol, and higher in protein than chicken, beef, or pork. how do get people to try it? the owner of this ranch approached people around the country and made them an offer they cannot refuse. >> several situations where the chef says we cannot sell that. i said, put it on the menu and if you cannot sell it, we will not charge you for it. >> it is much more lean, much more clean. >> you can make it, you can grill it. i found it quite good. jane: this man who is pushing it, what makes him think that american consumers will buy it? >> sometimes on your menu, you will see his name. his name is synonymous with quality in beef and pork. he pioneered the idea of all natural grass fed beef. now he has turned to goats. one reason is sustainability. actually worked together. he has had interest from costco.
scene? >> first of all, if we want to save the american manufacturing, to compete with china and india, the government needs to help manufacturing, not hammer them. this california metals co. is a good example of what has been happening. their staff is down about half. energy costs are so expensive, they start running this furnace at 9:00 at night. a report coming from the milken institute saying california has lost more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs for the last six years. why? high taxes, heavy regulation, and a hostile legislator. basically, they take scrap copper and brass here, and turn it into battle to sell to other companies. a lot of the manufacturing has been producing some bad odors down the street, so now they are asking them to retrofit some of these jobs. jane: who was your favorite character on gilligan's island? i believe you are a marianne guy. she gave her fans a chance to own television history. she auctioned off a few items from her home. why did she think that the show made such an impact on american pop culture? >> there was no time. everybody wanted to be on a i
. it has also been passed in the country of india and it failed there, too. what people don't realize is that a lot of the times the plastic surgeon is doing a combined reconstructive and cosmetic procedure and it is difficult to separate one from the other. the most important part of it is the humanity involved in it. a lot of times it is reconstructing people and their scars, for instance, breast cancer, skin cancer and even cleft lip and pallet and i doubt many americans will want to have that taxed. i bet there are a lot of women who have had breast cancer who will be against this. >>> do we know if there will be a distinction between something like an eyebrow lift that is cosmetic? >> the details haven't been worked out. i think it is still in the committee. i know that senator balk said we will have some fun with this one and i think there was an uproar in there because i doubt many people who have had cancer think there is much fun or humor to it. >> seems like so much of what washington is focused on is making sure they go after the high tax bracket folks, people who seem to h
of sweet out there and less sugar getting grown. it doesn't help that india the world's second largest producer suffers from a bad drought. like most economic issues these days, politics is a big part of the recipe. food companies pay higher prices for u.s. sugar because it's artificially high. kept that way for powerful lawmakers supporting the sugar beet and cane sugar farmers. chocolate and cookie makers want president obama to allow them to have more sugars overseas. there is a big debate simmering about that. even whether there is really a shortage of sugar in spite of the high prices. before you go to sugar shock, fearful you won't get hersheys, america won't likely run out of sugar. we don't emergency reserve like we do with the other commodity we crave, oil, but many of producers have stock piles so there is no need to horde the favorite food, though the world futures for the sweet stuff is on a sugar high in the economic times, racing prices for sugar, and like is one temptation most big food firms might have to resist. >> shannon: all right. i have to tell you that the produc
